I'm thinking about moving to a state where you get four distinct seasons. What are the best states to go?

Minnesota. A solid 3 months of each season.

I'd say pretty much anywhere between the 35th and 40th degree parralel, especially East of the Mississippi River, and West of the Appalachian Mountains

The Southern 2/3rds of Indiana has 4 distinct seasons and generally, no extreme weather conditions. Nothing remarkable about any of the seasons in Indiana. Not too many summer days it gets above 90 degrees. Not too many winter days it gets below zero. Fall nights are crisp and cool, like they are suppose to be. Spring afternoons it's really nice to be outside. Temps usually in 60's and low 70's relatively low humidity compared to humidity in the Sumner.

The weather in Indiana, is like Indiana it's self, average, normal, low profile, Middle America, unremarkable, not too many extremes of any kind in Indiana, when it's being compared and ranked with other states whether it be the weather, or anything else, Indiana usually falls somewhere in the middle of the pack.

Any upper south state has a good four seasons climate. Hot summer nice spring and fall and a mild winter.

I lived in Virginia and Maryland and I loved the even spacing of the seasons and the fairly mild (but not TOO mild) winters. I mean, it would snow occasionally but it wasn't frigid for months on end. And those states have beautiful fall colors and nice crisp fall weather, lush cool springs, and hot but not crazy hot summers.

Not at all. Winter is Dec to Feb, in an unlucky year it stretches into March which is usually just an occasional snow storm, but the temps are starting rise at that point. If you want distinct 4 seasons (that is, a real winter), the North is where you get it.

OK, which states would that be?
